Employee Volunteer Program

The mission of the Employee Volunteer Program (EVP) is to motivate, empower and enable the employees of NKS, and their families, to effectively serve community needs through the leadership of NKS. EVP will leverage employee skills and interests, and company assets to make a difference in underserved communities in both Chicago and Nashville. In doing so we hope to address the underlying racial and economic disparities that face Black and Brown communities throughout these cities, and the country at large.
